If you wanted to examine the exception from code, you could have:

{{{
#!python
(x,y) = (5,0)
try:
  z = x/y
except Exception, e:
  z = e # representation: "<exceptions.ZeroDivisionError instance at 0x817426c>"
print z # output: "integer division or modulo by zero"

Handling Exceptions

The simplest way to handle exceptions is with a "try-except" block:

   1 (x,y) = (5,0)
   2 try:
   3   z = x/y
   4 except:
   5   z = "divide by zero"

If you wanted to examine the exception from code, you could have:

   1 (x,y) = (5,0)
   2 try:
   3   z = x/y
   4 except Exception, e:
   5   z = e # representation: "<exceptions.ZeroDivisionError instance at 0x817426c>"
   6 print z # output: "integer division or modulo by zero"
